Land’s Edge – a coastal memoir – on BBC i-player now

Living on edge

Falling asleep with the radio on is one of my favourite indulgences (after spitting double overhead barrels, naturellement), especially listening to the shipping forecast and the Radio 4 sign off Sailing By on the cusp of consciousness.

Sometime this week, I heard an installment of Tim Winton’s (author of ‘Breath’ – the only surfing novel ever read in Book Clubs) book Land’s Edge. For surfers it’s an evocative explanation of the lure of the ocean. Its on BBC i-player for a few more days.
